Very cool PDF version of these books from HP-labs
The good folks at HP-Labs have been working overtime. They have downloaded the processed jpegs of the canadian library collection and produced PDF's that are very cool.
* really compressed (try doing this with a linux compressor!)
* OCR so you can search for words and pop up the right page.
* Even detecting the chapter heads and building a PDF table of contents (in this book it is particularly challenging, but it useful even in this state)
Please take a look and enjoy.
Given enough positive feedback, they might do this for all the books in the collection.
